Dakine is the first and only home builder in Saskatchewan to be a member of Built Green® Canada, a national organization that recognizes and promotes environmentally-friendly residential construction practices, including improving indoor air quality, reducing electrical and water consumption, and diminishing our overall environmental footprint.

We hope that through our continued involvement with Built Green®, we can encourage more Saskatchewan builders to become members. After all,
